Renovated brick workshop near San Gimignano
12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 8 baths
Uncover modern luxury close to the historic charm of San Gimignano at Villa Iris. This beautifully restored vacation rental overlooks the town’s famous towers from a perch amid the vineyards and is close enough to Siena and Florence for a day trip. Make the six-bedroom villa your home for a relaxing holiday with family or a base for exploring Tuscany with friends.
Villa Iris sits on more than an acre of private grounds surrounded by quintessential Italian countryside: olive groves, vineyards and hills rolling into the distance. Enjoy the views from outdoor living areas with a stone swimming pool, jetted tub, bocce court, lounging and dining areas, and a barbecue. Inside, you’ll find amenities from a fitness room and ping-pong table to a wellness area with a sauna.
The villa itself was once a brick workshop and dates back to 1737. Thanks to a careful restoration, it’s now comfortable and chic, with traditional details like cotto floors and beamed ceilings set off by casual modern furnishings in the living and dining rooms. The fully equipped kitchen expertly pairs rustic cabinetry with state-of-the-art appliances and Carrara marble surfaces to stunning effect.
There are three bedrooms on the villa’s ground floor, all with king beds, and three on the upper story: two with double beds and one with two twin beds. All six bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning.
The grounds and scenery around Villa Iris make it the perfect setting for a family reunion, a milestone birthday or anniversary celebration or even a destination wedding—and the honeymoon after. If you’ve just come to sightsee, it’s an easy walk through the vineyards to a nearby restaurant, where you can dine or try a wine tasting, and the towers of San Gimignano. Drive to Siena, Florence or Volterra for the day, and if you have time, continue your trip in Lucca or Pisa.
